The LuminaAnother great Raphael & Elena story, this time centered on the Luminata in their own special place called Lumia. Somewhere near Morocco.
The Luminata is supposed to be for angels over 1,000 years old who are looking for Luminescence, a belief in inner peace.
Only the Luminata can call a meeting of the Cadre and to not turn up is to lose their territory & invite a war with their fellow archangels.
Elena is excited to go as she will be near where her mother came from and she is eager to do some research on her ancestors. Raphael is happy that something is at last happening about the Archangel of China, Lijuan's disappearance. Which is why the meeting has been called.
But when they arrive they can feel that many things aren't right, and Elena's spooky & creepy vibes are aroused. The mystery is whether they will be able to fix the Luminata, the local town & still get Elena's answers, or will the Cadre fall back on the old excuse, that it doesn't concern them, it is only mortals after all....more
Naasir, the really mysterious one of the Seven, really wants his mate. He is yet to find her and can't understand why she is hiding from him.
Raphael gNaasir, the really mysterious one of the Seven, really wants his mate. He is yet to find her and can't understand why she is hiding from him.
Raphael gives him a task, to protect the angelic scholar Andromeda (Andi) on her quest to find the sleeping Ancient, Alexander. Jason has heard rumours that Lijuan wants to kill Alexander before he wakes. And it becomes a race to find him first.
Lots of adventures & rescues, and Andi smelling delicious has Naasir wondering if Andi is his mate. But she's taken a vow of celibacy, so he has his doubts.
This was a lovely coming together of two people with major secrets, with Naasir proving to be one of the best hero's of the year, funny, wild, honest, trustworthy, and very, very naughty. Andi was just what he needed, though he is loved by the Seven, and their mates, and Raphael & Elena, he considers them all his family, he wants a mate of his own to share secret games with.
The Cascade is continuing and lots of things are happening to the Cadre and major angels including Bluebell. So I'm very interested to see what happens next. ...more
Wow! It is a transition book between the fall of Silence & what is to happen in the future.
Aden as the leader of the Arrows is our H and his h isWow! It is a transition book between the fall of Silence & what is to happen in the future.
Aden as the leader of the Arrows is our H and his h is Zaire, another Arrow who was badly damaged by her psychotic parents before she was claimed by the Arrows. They've known each other since they were children but neither intended to do anything about the other.
The romance was there but was pretty low key; as the scope of the story just kept expanding and lots of players made an appearance. It was good to touch base with lots of favourites and get a little more intimate with Remi & his leopards of RainFire, and the cubs!
The next book is set to be even more of an ensemble cast, so we should get to see the pubcubs soon. ...more
